It's Fashion Friday, time to take a peek at how the kiddos like to dress themselves. Today they were excited to wear their new Justin Roberts "Willy was a whale" tees (they went to his concert over the weekend) and bring his cd to preschool to share with the teachers. After breakfast they tore upstairs and assembled their wild outfits, giggling and laughing the whole time. Cuteness. It's interesting that both girls went for red bottoms, because the t-shirt is orange, and doesn't have any red in it. It works, though. Ree (left) also wanted to play up some blue because the whale is blue, so she grabbed blue sparkle ponytail holders, a blue jacket, and some Hanna Andersson clogs that have blue accents. Ro (right) added a bold red velvety skirt and leggings, along with hot pink jacket and shoes. Dang, I just think they look adorable (I know, I know, could I BE any more biased? Heh heh.) Every time they get to preschool, by the way, they run (full-speed) into the classroom, talking a mile-a-minute and bursting with exciting things that they need to share with their teachers immediately. Yeesh—I try not to let them disrupt class, I swear, but they are hard to contain. TubaDad took them to preschool one day last week and, in the middle of trying to get them to settle down, put coats in cubbies, and quietly join the group, he looked up at one of the teachers and said kind of apologetically "They're the loudest kids in the world, aren't they?" and she laughed and said "Yep, they're the loudest kids in the world, but they're also the happiest kids in the world." And you know what? She's right. Life isn't perfect and we have our share of dramatic four-year-old moments, but Ro and Ree are remarkably happy kids. Maybe it has something to do with having a twin/best friend/playmate always by your side? I don't know, but everything is an adventure to them, everything is an opportunity for fun. When they burst into school today, one teacher grinned and said "They just light up the room, don't they?" and another teacher laughed and said "Woohoo, the party has arrived!" Funny, sweet, exuberant, enthusiastic girls—may they always find huge joy in the little things, and may I always remember that joy is far more important than perfect behavior.
